Simulation training

Who are we?

Working with the Clinical Skills Managed Education Network (CSMEN) we are developing simulation-based educational development programmes for medical training programmes across Scotland. There is a recognition for the need for repetitive, deliberate practice of skills, with feedback as the foundation to developing and enhancing skills.

The programmes focus on:

  • An improved balance between service delivery and training
  • An improved relationship with professionalised trainers
  • Integrated use of simulation as an adjunct to clinical apprenticeship

Many of the programmes are still being developed at the moment, but please click on one of the options below to find out more about the current programmes.
